1. Here is Exodus 3-7, too much to quote here. Featuring the Burning Bush, Moses, Hebrew slaves, strange gods (actually goddesses), Aharon, Pharaoh, a staff turning into a snake, and sing-along phonetic hieroglyphs.
    The introduction to this scene is "God Calls Moses to Mt. Horeb", here: vimeo.com/118255690

    Music: Go Down Moses en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go_Down_Moses
    Arranged and performed by Louis Armstrong (with Sy Oliver's Orchestra, 1958): en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Armstrong

    Unlike most other Seder-Masochism scenes I've posted, this one isn't primarily parody; the overall message is similar to that of the song. I still argue it's Fair Use, and transformative. Parody isn't the only way to transform (nor is transformation the only criterion for Fair Use). "Go Down Moses" itself was transformative without being parody: it made Exodus into a story of American slavery. Creativity is complicated and shouldn't be dictated by lawyers. LET MY PEOPLE GO!
